The memory of murdered Welwyn Garden City man Scott Stone lives on and a charity bar crawl in his honour raised hundreds of pounds.

The cash sum of £715.30 will go to London-based homelessness charity St Mungo’s Broadway, where the popular 26-year-old worked.

The charity event was organised by Mr Stone’s twin brother Jamie, who said: “It’s nice we can at least highlight something positive from the horrible events that have transpired over the last six months.”

Scott Stone was killed by 53-year-old Paul Dillon, who was jailed last month for at least 22 years for his murder.

Jamie Stone told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “A close friend of myself and Scott, Jacob Sizeland, wished to organise an event in memory of Scott for his friends and family and with the view to being able to donate to a charity of my mum’s choice.

“Given Scott’s job and the passion he had developed for the work of St Mungo’s during his short time there it was agreed that this would be our charity of choice.”
